>Somebody seriously needs to come up with more for inmates to do. More productive hours in the day would probably help cut down on the number of cases jamming up the courts. Cases like that filed recently by 21-year-old Kyle Richards, for instance.
In a handwritten lawsuit, Richards says that Michigan’s Macomb County Jail is violating his civil rights and subjecting him to cruel and unusual punishment by denying his requests for porn. Yes, apparently there’s a porn shortage in America’s prisons, and it can no longer be stood for, so to speak.
Incidentally, the words “in a handwritten lawsuit” are becoming an even bigger sign that there is trouble to come than a story starting off with “a Romanian man” used to be.
But back to this correctional porn shortage. I’m sure there’s a simple solution, probably more than one. Maybe Mr. Richards could drop some soap at shower time and not be content to let it go bye bye, or maybe he could try to bum a smoke (there we go again) but not have any money. I’m sure either one of those scenarios would net him all the porn he could handle and then some.
By the way, this guy is also a master criminal. Check out how he wound up confined to a tug free zone.
Richards was charged with bank robbery after police followed a trail of snowy footprints and dropped money to his apartment from a bank robbery scene in January in Fraser, north of Detroit.
Richards pleaded guilty. Sentencing is Aug. 2.
